John Dean: Bush worse than Nixon: "He believes that the Bush Administration has so ruthlessly exploited the September 11 tragedy that, in the event of another deadly terrorist attack on American soil, 'Bush and Cheney will simply push aside the Constitution they have sworn to uphold, inflame public passions with tough talk . . . and take this country to a place it has only been once. For 11 weeks during the onset of the Civil War, president Lincoln became what scholars have euphemistically called 'a constitutional dictator'.'"

Dean thus joins Tommy Franks in warning how close America is to an end to constitutional liberal democracy and the establishment of a dictatorship.
